goning on on the identity of the executioner who has a north american acent. it is the same as the other christians. they are trying to determine if it is dubbed over or a north american is letting those executions in the country. portions of the 29 minute tape appear to be digitally alter. and there are other things in the film that suggest green scene technology would be used. this is the second time isis staged a mass execution in libia. the islamic state is comfortable and operating there and fox was first to report that isis is expand nothing north
africa. and isis is now blamed for 20 plots in the country. on friday, president obama addressed the growing safe haven. >> we are consistently looking in where terrorist threats iminate and libya is a area of great concern. isil is explicit of using libya as a potential justification for putting their personnel there. >> the latest video is described as having advanced post production and no guidance on whether they are professionally trained or sufficiently taught jenna. >> we'll revisit that later this hour. >> and we'll hear from our viewers. with news of another massacre is the u.s. doing enough to help the people of africa? >> in the meantime six minnesota
men are charged with terrorism and for attempting to join isis. they were planning to fly out of san diego and new york to get to it syria it relies on a informant who was also conspiring to join the terror group before changing his minds. these are the latest arrests of westerners accused of trying to join the islamic state militants. >> australia, now the united states ally agreed to share information with the fighters with iran. the arrangement is meant to help the fight against isis and not help terrain. >> i want there to be no misunderstanding. the unit of supporting the iraqi government and we are there at the invitation of the iraqi
government. >> she charged australians to stay away saying they would be killed in a joined isis. >> while we are talking of iran president obama doing a major sales pitch. by meeting with the crown prince of the united arab emirates. the iranian supreme leader is talking tough about the new round of negotiations. joishgs it is a complicated walk for a president who is convinced diplomatic solution is the smartest and safest way to go in iran and yet still so much work to be done before that possibility will be a reality. the talks are still under way. and part of that including talks with a key ally.
crown prince of of the uae sharing concerns about a nuclear capitol iran and today their supreme leader repeating the claim that iran is only interested in nuclear energy and not weapon row. mong them israeli freedom prime benjamin netanyahu said the obama desire for a agreement with iran is unwise. there is a number of mechanisms in place to hold iran accountable if they violate a possible deal. >> our main concern here, is making sure if iran doesn't a boyd by its agreement, we don't have to jump through hoops in order to reinstate sanctions. >> reporter: clearly that is the rub.
will the sanctions be eliminated in total? people are looking for information and small details like that we don't know what will turn out if a deal is reached by the end of june. we'll hear more probably from the briefing here in the united states. >> thank you, kevin. >> there is a way for captainingal republicans to repeal obama care. it can be addressed using a maneuver using reconciliation. the gop is divided. it would be vetoed and a way to achieve other goals. karl rove chief of staff to george bush and fox news contributor. democratsoused reconciliation to pass the affordable care act. and what about the republicans
using it to repeal obama care. >> if they do use reconciliation to repeal it president obama will veto it. there is some who say let's not waste the time. they want to put everybody on the record knowing that president obama will veto. it the question is how much time will be eaten up with that maneuver. we are getting to a point where time is important. republicans are more likely going to run with a positive alternative as well. and it takes time to work through. that in the end of the day, republicans promised to repeal it and my suspension there will be an effort do do that. >> what do you advise? >> get it done with. they have to wait until the
house and senate budget negotiators meeting in conference arrive in the final set of numbers. this was last done in 2010 to allow for the passage of the affordable care act. the republicans will be in the majority since before 2010. and they will be able to arrive at an admissibility -- added number. and it it will go to the senate. the senate is more difficult with the question of time because they are more free range and allow for more expression of opinion. it is more of an issue in the senate, they are feeling the pinch and they want to use the moment of time to move positive and constructive agenda on behalf of the conservative cause. >> use the time for tax reform or rewrite and use
reconciliation for. >> one thing on reconciliation. tax writers indicated they want a bipartisan agreement so they can move a senate tax reform with 60 votes. they have a willing accomplice in senator wydon of oregon. so we are not likely to be an issue from voting the repeal of obama care. maybe other issues they are concerned about running out of time it. >> and now the big topic today. the new report out of the new york times. there is a new book that claims that foreign enitties who gave money to the charity received favorable treatment from hillary clinton while secretary of state. we learned of this and questions about the foundation going back to the washington post story
midfebruary. what are you hearing about this, carl? inside of your circles? >> i don't know him well, but i know of peter, who did the book. he is a meticulous writer. it appears to be deeply researched and here are the facts. this has to be devastating and it is problematic when the clinton foundation is raising money from foreign governments at the same time mrs. clinton is secretary of state. it is also problematic that the clinton foundation is receiving money from foreign governments when she is comtemplating running for president. peter has gone to the tax documents and other materials in order to arrive at a picture of what this pattern has been. and my suspicion it will be
a terrific read and problematic read for the clinton campaign. >> when the story ca it caused a big flurries back in february. flurries started and then the news moved on and what would have to be in this book that would potentially change the path that hillary clinton is setting for herself to be the democratic nominee for president. >> new information about the nature of the contributions in question. my understanding that more information about more contributions and reporting on who benefitted by the policys and actions while she was secretary of state. he is a researcher with a strong reputation of being straightforward reporter of what the facts are. we learned in february.

huberts will try to convince the jury she killed her boyfriend in self deputies. >> she's got tough testimony against her including a former cell mate who described how this woman got into her cell and basically bragged about killing her on and off again boyfriend. >> i agree, john. the i don't think the testimony makes it a slam dunk. i disagree with people who compare it to the jodi arias case where she was convicted. there are differences and they benefit the defendant in this case. she called 911 and that is a compelling argument and confessed. jodi didn't do. that she didn't try to clean up the cream scene or discard the
gun. the woman had injuries that are consistent with the claims of being beat up. and her story remained consistent since day one and didn't change it like good old jodi arias. i am not saying it will means she will be acquitted but they help her. >> what do you think? >> i think it is the prosecution's case to lose. she claim self defense. she has shown remorse what so ever and not one tear questioned by the police. and shoots six times. 1 or 2 shots for self defense but six times and not forget the text message. one sent 11 days prior. go to the shooting range and i will shoot him and make it seem like know accident. and the confession to the jail house snitches. i understand that they look at
them and say they it are not credible. we have three, who say the same thing, she was not acting out of self defense and showed no remorse and did it out of cold blood. jail house snitches have nothing to lose. and if it gets back that she is a snitch who has a target on her back. and what does she have to lose that sheena made the confessions to her. >> she might get them to look at a post traumatic stress defense. >> that is the defense. and i disagree with anna over there. i think she was sobbing and croiing and once again the fact that she shot him six times. that doesn't look like self defense at first blush.
but if they argue she was a battered woman. you shoot shoot until you think that that threat is abated and they will use those unterigation tapes. look, how is a person supposed to act once they have taken somebody's life. she will be erratic or gibling or crying and nervous. there is no one way to react when you kill a boyfriend. >> and he was about to go out on a date with somebody else? >> motive is not required but it helps and in this case he was trying to get rid of her and cut ties and she was not having it. and he had a datelined up with a beauty queen contestant. and that's giving her motive and i think the prosecution has they are going to win in this case.

13.7 billion in pollution fines in addition to what bm paid out. >> we spent $28 billion far on clean up and response and claims and the gulf is recovering faster than anyone expected and the company spent billions more trying to get safer. >> despite new technology that was developed like the capping stannings that would go on top of a leaking well. environmental group to not believe that the gulf returning to normal based on their studies. >> i think that looking at past large oil spills and one thing they have seen, the consequences or the impact of the spill are often not known for a long time. we are still in that time. we don't know what the full
impact of the spill is yet. >> most fishermen and shrimpers say that business hasn't been the same sips the spill five years ago jon. >> thank you casy. >> isis slaughter ares another group of christians. there is more horrifying executions in libya. are we seeing a christian genocide at the hands of isis? and kim jon yun g. by scaling the country's tallest peak. >> and in a dress coat and shoes. photos are great... ...for capturing your world. and now they can transform it with the new angie's list app you can you can get projects done in a snap. take a photo of your project

and that is happening in northeast. is this genocide? here is the center fellow. fred. what do you think about that. is this what we are witnessing? >> good to be here. this is genocide. isis is not only at war with the world but christians and say you can convert to islam or you will be be killed. they are giving a choice to pay a tax without being killed. the objective of isis is to kill all christians in the areas it controls. >> if that is the case how did it change our calculation and the way we speak about it even as americans? >> it concerns me. i congratulate fox for uncovering the issue. i congratulate you for covering this. christians are being
exterminated and we have to realize we are at war with a global iideology. >> the president said in the past and recently just a few weeks ago, we are not at war with ice lal. but if they are at war with christians and then what does that mean for our strategy and how do we approach this group. >> gen a think about that. the president said we are not at war with islam. they are at war with us. we can't defeat it unless we recognize the threat. we need a strategy to focus on radical islam. and that is a global threat and not a regional terrorist threat. >> we'll talk about results and consequences. we saw the similar video a few months ago, we saw christians beheaded. the egyptians reacted with air
strikes. these are ethiopian christians and certainly do not have the same resources as egyptians. what do we do differently to elicit the results. isis is continuing to do this. and the results did not change even though it was met with more aggression. >> i have two response. the egyptian response didn't achieve anything. and i might also add the reason that isis is doing the attacks in libya is interesting. it is a permissive environment. they can execute people out in the open and not be subject to the air strikes. we have to have a strategy to go after isis everywhere. we could see executions like this and the u.s. should do something about it. >> if we see air strikes on
libya coast send jets out there to blow them to oblivion. if they are wearing line up of orange jumpsuits. we could see. that they are filmed out in open. >> and experts say there is coordination that they are seeing now and they believe that isis representatives terrorist in libya are working with those inside of syria and showing that the group is together and then the news of those in america being arrested because they want to fight on behalf of isis and the network extending to north america. but the broader strategy what do we need? the results are the same that isis is killing more people and more brutally and nothing is changing. >> i would add that we don't know the purpose.
they may be trying to exaggerate their ability in libia. they are pushing a global ideology. and we are focusing on a terrorist group we can't deal with a global threat. >> thank you so much. >> good to be here. >> north korea also notorious for propaganda could be taking it to new heights literally. state run media reported that kim jong-un climbed the highest mountain. the peak over 9000 feet over sea level. there is seems to be no end of what kim jong-un can do. he can fly a fighter jet and direct military exercises. >> he is be wearing a hat. >> a young vladimar putin.
